Title IX

Title IX Know Your Rights

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs. It protects victims of sexual or gender-based bullying and harassment and survivors of gender-based violence. Protection from the discrimination on the basis of sex includes protection from being retaliated against for filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment.

New York University is committed to complying with Title IX and enforcing University policies prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex. Mary Signor, Executive Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity, serves as New York University’s Title IX Coordinator. The University’s Title IX Coordinator is a resource for any questions or concerns about sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, or sexual misconduct and is available to discuss your rights and judicial options.

University policies define prohibited conduct, provide informal and formal procedures for filing a complaint and a prompt and equitable resolution of complaints.

Student victims and complainants in situations involving sexual assault are afforded certain rights specified in the Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy. Where immediate assistance is required, emergency help is available. In addition to using the complaint procedures under University policies, a victim of sexual misconduct has the option to report the incident to the appropriate local authorities and the University will assist victims in doing so.

The NYU Wellness Exchange provides support and resources for Sexual Assault Prevention and Response.

The Office of Equal Opportunity is available to students, faculty and staff with respect to any questions and concerns about sexual harassment, sexual violence, or other forms of discrimination on the basis of sex.
